Applications are invited for a Senior Research Associate position to be based in the University of Cambridge, Department of Biochemistry, central Cambridge, working in the laboratory of Prof. Jussi Taipale. The group includes both experimental biologists and computer scientists.
The laboratory focuses on the study of transcriptional control of cell growth, using functional genomics and systems biology, and mouse genetic models. Current lines of work include high-throughput determination of binding sites and binding specificities of human transcription factors, and using this information to identify regulatory elements that control cell growth during normal development or in cancer (see, for example Hallikas et al., Cell 124:47-59, 2006; Sur et al., Science 338:1360-1363, 2012; Jolma et al., Cell 152:327-339, 2013; Jolma et al., Nature 527:384-388, 2015; Yin et al., Science 356:eaaj2239, 2017; Zhu et al., Nature 562:76-81, 2018; Yan et al., Nature 591:147-151, 2021).
The work profile is a combination of scientific and administrative tasks. The successful applicant will supervise day-to-day activities of the research lab, including supervision of graduate and PhD students and lab managers. In addition, the candidate will support the PI with regard to tasks such as writing manuscripts and grant applications, reporting of grants and organizing courses and international meetings. Finally, the applicant should pursue an independent research project in the general area of gene expression and/or cancer.
Applicants should have a PhD in molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry or computational biology, and should have several years of post-doctoral experience in the area. Candidate should also have experience in writing grants and supervising undergraduate, MSc and PhD students.
Informal enquires can be made by contacting Dr Jussi Taipale, email: firstname.lastname@example.org ; further information on the Taipale lab can be obtained at: https://www.bioc.cam.ac.uk/research/taipale
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3 years in the first instance.
